The following video and information comes from the Minnetonka School District:
T. Mychael Rambo is a resident artist from COMPAS (Community Programs in the Arts) and has been working with schools in Minnetonka for nearly a decade.
He motivates and encourages students to develop their creative imagination and artistic voice through movement, creative writing, creative dramatics and improvisation. Many of these are "21st Century Skills" which the district is focusing on this school year.
Rambo worked with fourth graders at Groveland Elementary the week of Oct. 22. The week-long residency provides an opportunity for teachers and students to work alongside a professional artist who acts as a guide through the creative process and connects with themes and learning areas already familiar to students.
The week ended with a performance for classmates and parents.
T. Mychael Rambo is a public figure in the Twin Cities art scene as an actor, singer, playwright and director and affiliate professor/recruitment coordinator at the University of Minnesota in the School of Theatre Arts and Dance. He’s shared his talents as a theater professional with the Guthrie, Penumbra, Mixed Blood, Illusion, Minnesota Opera and many other companies. He has performed in numerous films, TV programs and commercials.
